Historical Fisheries

history and methods of fisheries banner

The atlas of illustrations accompanying Section V - History and Methods of the Fisheries - contains 255 plates that detail methods of the American fisheries in the late Nineteenth Century. Besides detailing fishing methods, these images are sources of information for the late Nineteenth Century concerning vessel design, shoreline appearance in various areas, the state of fish processing industrial installations, and the life and times of the fisheries sub-culture of the larger American social structure. This site will be of value and interest to all those interested in the past and present state of American fisheries as well as little-known facets of the industrial and social history of the United States.
